No, my son doesn't have a father!

From the delivery room to the classroom, a woman whose motherhood is questioned explains: her son doesn't have a father, but he's got two moms. She is the other mother. A (m)other, but there was only room for one on the birth certificate. In the minds of some adults and kids, however, a father figure must be found. Adapted from a 2018 CBC Poetry Prize shortlisted poem, this book tells, with tenderness and accuracy, the difficulties that homoparental families face in being accepted for who they are: loving families.
